SCOPE: UNESCO and Sony bring robotics to a remote Indian village

UNESCO and Sony bring robotics to a remote village in India

Two Sony employees introduced a robot and a digital camera to scores of underprivileged children recently at the Terakoya community learning center in a remote village in southern Indian state of Karnataka. For the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan (NFUAJ), this was the beginning of direct corporate participation in their foreign aid program. And for the children, who had never seen a robot or a digital camera in real life before, it was their first brush with high-technology.
